I have had such remarkable help in Christian Science, that I desire to tell of my healing, hoping that it may help others. For twenty-five years I was a great sufferer from distress in my head. I had twenty-seven different doctors, some of whom were noted specialists in Boston. Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Denver, and San Francisco. I underwent five different operations, one being very serious. The most severe suffering had occurred about every two weeks for twenty-five years: and the only relief for ten years came from injections of morphine, of which I was finaily obliged to take very large quantities. A Christian Scientist who knew me and had heard of my sufferings, begged me to try Christian Science; but I had then lost hope of ever being helped, and was so discouraged that I did not want to try anything.

I moved to Salt Lake City in 1903, where this same friend resides. she again advised trying Christian Science, and I then went for the first time to see a practitioner. At first I received but little benefit, and I now think it was because I opposed the teaching. I could not believe it was for me. I attended the Science services, but was much discouraged when I heard of cases of quick healing. I so opposed the Science that I would not purchase any of the literature, but read borrowed books. After a time I was convinced I must do more for myself: that I should read and study more earnestly. On doing this, I began to see that the truth was for me as much as for any one: and I began to improve gradually. This was about seven months after I had started in Science, and within two months more the severe headaches lessened. Within four or five months more, or a little over a year after I became interested in Christian Science, I was entirely healed.

During the time I was being treated in Science, I was healed of rheumatic trouble in two treatments. Since then I have been through many kinds of exposure, have never had any return of the trouble, and am now in better health than in twenty-five years.
